Greetings, me and some friends just picked this edition up and had one burning question for those who play now and perhaps played back in the day.

Can vehicles charge? if not why would you give an ork warboss on bike a power claw? is the only way around this to ram less than 10" so the troops don't scatter/you don't explode against a Leman Russ?

The issue with bikes has always been present in our group. We used to apply the Hit and Run rule when charging with bikes.. but in the end completeley rewrote the rules for Bikes and Jump Packs to streamline them. Under our rulings bikes are now simply an option that gives to a model M10" (so Charge and Run 20"), +1 Toughness and +1 to Armor save. Maybe less charismatic.. but soooo much more simple to handle.

In order to streamline the games, we modified the Jump Packs removing the scatter from the "standard" Jump Packs and applying their rules to the Stormboyz ones, in order to make them sensed to be fielded.

Going back to 2nd edition is the best choice you could make.

Enjoy!!! armata_PDT_37.gif

Edit
I amended some typos and added our jump pack rules modifications

Unless the bike comes to a complete stop it just does a hit an run attack. So putting a close combat character on a bike is probably not the best use for it! Really the bikes are just highly mobile gun platforms.

Our group has done some of the things suggested by Darkweaver, in terms of streamlining some of the rules a bit. We have not changed the bike rules though.
